The Sunshine Tour and Airlink have unveiled a new partnership, which sees Airlink become the ‘Official Airline’ of the tour.
The one-year partnership will include preferential rates for Sunshine Tour professionals and staff.
“We are very proud to welcome Airlink to the Sunshine Tour family. This partnership plays a vital role as we continue to expand our schedule and offer greater playing opportunities within South Africa and into the rest of Africa, and with Airlink able to offer a reliable and premier service for our travelling professionals and staff,” said Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour.
Airlink is Southern Africa’s largest privately-owned airline, connecting to the widest network with more than 45 destinations in 13 African countries and St Helena Island.

The timing of the partnership coincides with the Sunshine Tour’s announcement of its latest expanded schedule which includes several new tournaments to destinations within South Africa, as well as to neighbouring African countries.
“Airlink is proud to be associated with the Sunshine Tour, and we welcome the Sunshine Tour professional golfers and staff as our customers,” said Airlink CEO and Managing Director, Rodger Foster. “Airlink offers unrivalled travel choices to the broadest network of destinations with the most comprehensive flight schedule within Southern Africa. Just as we do with all our clientele, it is our mission to deliver extraordinary and memorable travel experiences.”
It’s been a busy time for the Sunshine Tour, which just last week also announced that Investec had taken up the headline sponsorship of the SA Open for four years, with this year’s tournament due to take place at Blair Atholl in Johannesburg, in early-December.
